Features

Picture of 4K Home Theatre Projector

4K native resolution for lifelike pictures

With more than four times the resolution of Full HD, native 4K offers 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160) for a picture that’s so incredibly lifelike, it’s like looking at the real thing. This is the same resolution defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives for cinema distribution, with pixels one quarter the size of those used by traditional Full HD 1080p projectors. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.

Intense 2000 lumens brightness

Savour the action with the brightness you need to fill the screen with high contrast. A high-pressure 330W lamp generates the intense brightness required for vibrant images on screens up to 508cm (200 inches) diagonally.

Wider colour space makes everything realistic 

With a specially designed colour filter, this projector can display the full gamut of colours provided by the DCI specification for movies, so you see the scene as the director intended. Photos are ultra realistic and bursting with colour, with support for the Adobe RGB standard.

Detail in every corner with the 4K ARC-F Lens

The super High Resolution 4K All-Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) lens featuring an 18-piece lens structure and floating focus system is similar to the lens found in a 4K digital cinema projector. It combines Sony’s HD SXRD projector lens and 4K digital cinema technologies with high power for intense detail across the entire screen. The floating lens group and focusing lens group move simultaneously, minimising image distortion to give high precision in every corner of the image.

Sharp images with extra low dispersion glass 

Extra low dispersion glass optimises the refractive index for green, red, and blue light to give clear, sharp images. Curvature on conventional lenses causes different light wavelengths to refract at different angles. This leads to pixel misalignment, especially at the edges of a screen, where light passes through the most curved part of a lens. ED glass changes the speed which different wavelengths pass through it, to ensure all wavelengths come out magnified at precisely the same point.

Motorised Zoom Lens and Wide Lens Shift

Installing the VPL-VW1100ES in your room is easy, with a 2.06 motorised zoom with a wide lens shift range. Adjust the position of the projector up to 80% vertically and 31% horizontally to get just the right angle for your movies. A flexible throw distance of 1.27–2.73m for 1.78:1 and 1.68–2.73m for 2.35:1 anamorphic allows you to tailor positioning perfectly to your environment.

Reality Creation upscales your favourites

Upscale your existing Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD movies to near 4K-quality. The super-resolution Reality Creation 4K upscaler analyses every pixel in any direction, then employs a digital signal processing algorithm to map pixels against an ever-evolving picture patterning database, compiled from over 10 years of expertise, to enhance colours, contrast, and textures.

Plays your Mastered in 4K discs

The ‘Mastered in 4K’ collection includes classic films, remastered with enhanced colour and detail for Blu-ray Disc. Play these discs on the VPL-VW1100ES with a pixel resolution and colour range that’s almost identical to the 4K original. The movie is down-sampled from the original 4K source at a high bitrate to 2K, then upscaled using the same algorithm to 4K.

Stay sharp with 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast

Dynamic contrast reaches a million to one, making every scene spring to life with fine detail and realism. At this level of contrast, the brightest whites are one million times brighter than the deepest blacks, so you can see detail in the darkest corners and shadow. You’ll enjoy precise picture quality in any environment, whether you’re watching movies in a dark home theatre or gaming in a sunlit room.

Contrast to match the scene with Advanced Iris 3

Advanced Iris 3 technology dynamically responds to light levels and selects optimum contrast to match the scene, bringing out the detail in dark shadow and preventing bright scenes from becoming washed out. By identifying the ratio of white and black in an image and adjusting the amount of light from the lamp, this unique Sony technology reproduces deeper blacks and expands dynamic range.

See deeper blacks with 4K SXRD™ panels 

Advanced SXRD™ (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panels with an ultra fast response rate of 2.5 milliseconds minimize the space between pixels in every frame. Comprising a thin LCD layer backed with a highly reflective silicon plate, SXRD splits the white light of the lamp into different colours using mirrors and sends these colours to a red, green, and blue panel in 4K resolution. Light passes in and out of each panel, allowing more effective light blocking for exceptionally deep blacks.

Colours come alive with TRILUMINOS™ 

Discover true-to-life colours and tones. The VPL-VW1100ES incorporates TRILUMINOS™ colour for a broader spectrum, reproducing more tones and textures than a standard projector system. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues, and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with skin tones being more faithfully reproduced.

Cool, functional styling 

Designed for the home with a clean, classic design that's easy to operate. Cable connections are hidden away at the side of the projector, while the lamp door is easily accessed from the top. A matt black finish cuts reflection and, along with a glossy mask and rear grille, gives a professional look and feel. Latest noise reduction technology keeps sound down to just 23 dB, so you hear more of your movies and less of the fan.

Lens protector keeps dust out 

The VPL-VW1100ES includes an electronic lens protector to keep dust out of the lens when not in use. The lens protector opens and closes automatically when the projector is turned on and off, so you don’t have to worry about removing or attaching a lens cap before and after a movie.

Connects to automated home systems 

The VPL-VW1100ES is compatible with a range of popular automated home systems. Connect up using the RS232 interface, RJ45 control, or IR-IN terminal.

Synchronised 3D entertainment

A built-in 3D transmitter synchronises the supplied glasses with the projector, so you can start watching 3D movies quicker. Upscale 2D films to 3D and enjoy classic movies in a whole new dimension, or watch anamorphic images and 3D films simultaneously without having to change the lens. High emission power gives you a strong signal anywhere in the room.

Supports a variety of widescreen formats

The film friendly VPL-VW1100ES gives a cinema-like sense of reality, whatever you’re watching. See movies in CinemaScope (2.35:1) without the need for an external anamorphic lens when using a CinemaScope screen. Enjoy widescreen formats with minimal or no black bars.

Picture Position Memory stores your settings

Lens, zoom, and shift settings for up to five screen formats can be stored for easy recall. Picture Position Memory remembers key settings so you can quickly watch movies in the ideal format. Match aspect ratios, including 1.78:1 and 2.35:1, and store these settings in the projector.

Select from nine picture calibration modes

Quickly calibrate the picture to what you’re watching or playing. Select from nine picture calibration modes, including two cinema film modes, cinema digital, reference, TV, photo, game, bright cinema, and bright TV.

Action stays smooth with Motionflow™ XR

Whatever you’re watching, you’ll enjoy a silk-smooth on-screen look in fast-moving action sequences with Motionflow™ XR. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original frames, first comparing key visual factors on successive frames, then calculating the split second of missing action in the sequences. This mimics actual movie projection, so you experience smoother movement, less blur and a greater sense of realism.
